The Ice Age series, across the four in the series, has been full of adventure and fun, and Continental Drift is no different. Scrat the squirrel starts the continental drift in his never ending pursuit of the acorn. Manny is separated from Ellie and Peaches during the drift and there begins his adventure with buddies Diego and Sid.

Sid is united with his family who, it turns out, just wanted to leave his granny with him and disappear. The granny, voice of Wanda Sykes, brings in fine humor. The pack, in their attempt to reunite Manny with his family, runs into evil Captain Gutt, the reigning pirate of the frozen waters. They venture off with his boat after beating his crew, only to run into him again. Here starts a friendship between Diego and Shira. Captain Gutt in a desperate attempt to get even with Manny holds Peaches hostage. Manny and the entire pack, including Granny, fight back with gusto.

The overall pace and adventure of The Continental Drift is at par with the previous versions, it's non-stop adventure with funny scenes that kids will enjoy. However, it feels like more of the same over and over again. There isn't much depth of content, no new ideas, no scintillating graphics, and no meaningful development of characters.

That being said, the movie is still great fun for the entire family. It's adventurous, funny, and definitely worth a watch.

Ice Age: Continental Drift is a playful movie. The movie focuses again on our furry friends including Manny, Diego, and Sid. The premise of the movie focuses on Manny's teenage daughter, Peaches. Scat's antics, the squirrel on the cover, cause an interesting turn of events leading the viewer to encounter a number of interesting new characters and ideas for the ice age series. Without spoiling the story, I can say that the film features a solid cast, strong family themes, and a simple and straightforward plot that while predictable and shallow, is both playful and fun. It is very enjoyable and engaging for those interested in a light hearted family film (that is good if you watch it alone as well).

The video itself is wonderful from a technical standpoint. The colors are saturated, the detail in the fur and environment is sharp and interesting. While few and far between, the blacks showcase detail and texture that will prove to be interesting and engaging.

The audio features a DTS-HD Master Audio and takes advantage of a wide dynamic range that while not blowing you out of your chair loud, will do nice to differentiate standard dialogue. The music found throughout the film is integral, yet never gets in the way of the dialogue which remains clear and understandable no matter what happens. For those with a powerful subwoofer, the movie will provide ample opportunities to exercise it.

In total, this movie was fun, playful, and a great for the family. It never goes very deep, the characters aren't the most dynamic, but it is the perfect movie to watch when looking for a quiet and enjoyable experience.

Fantastic 3D animation effects. This movie is all the way 5 stars.
Fun,fun,fun for any age.
Now I'll buy the Ice Age: Daw to the Dinosaurs 3D. To bad they don't make it the first one ( Ice Age) on 3D.
If you are looking for in your face 3D movie this is a must own for your collection, trust me.

This is a great Blu Ray movie but the 3D makes it even better. The colors are eye candy, the soundtrack is great and the story may have you in tears. Would recommend this movie to anyone's movie collection.

Last summer, my family and I saw this movie, as we are die-hard fans of the Ice Age film franchise since the first film was released in 2002. Laughed from beginning to end. We saw it twice in the theater, we enjoyed it that much! When it came out on Blu-ray/DVD (which I got for Christmas), we enjoyed it even more!

The plot: Sid, Manny and Diego are definitely in for the ride of their lives when they met a set of pirates, and Diego gets a girlfriend (voiced by J-Lo!).

If you liked Pirates of the Carribean and if you love the Ice Age movies, you'll love Ice Age 4: Continental Drift!

I thought this was an excellent movie. The story line was perfect for children to understand that chosen friends based on looks or how cool they appear to be, doesn't make them good friends or the type of person you would really consider a true friend.

Ice Age gets better with each new version.

We enjoyed watching this with our grandchildren. Fun to see the "herd" together again in an adventure! Not a very complicated plot, but still good clean family fun.

After I fiddled with the blu- ray trying to figure out why I could not reset for 3-D I pulled the code card for the Mobil APP and found the 3-D BLU-RAY behind the card. I only review 3-D and not a sample of my taste. In this case it is very good and the credits have four layers. I also enjoyed the film that had action, comedy, and music.

When I watch Ice Age, I couldn’t care less about the mammoth(s?), tiger, sloth, or any other idiotic extinct creatures; I do however care for and passionately love the squirrel.

Unless the squirrel is on screen, “Ice Age: Continental Drift” has its audience drifting in and out of boredom. Really, the squirrel is the only redeeming character of this film. To be totally honest, judging by the highly misleading cover image of the film, we all thought this entire movie was focused on the squirrel. But this is far from the case. Instead, the movie focuses on a slew of incessant squawking from, but not limited to, a stereotypical pack of jock-mammoths (was Niki Minaj’s character even necessary?) and a grandma sloth with a voice grating enough to grenade your eardrum. Not including the squirrel in every second of the movie was the creators’ first and greatest mistake. The squirrel has an affirmative position in movie history, alongside Orson Welles and Denzel Washington, not only because of his unparalleled talent, but because of the depth of his character.

The squirrel is the epitomization of mankind’s passions and uninhibited desires. Nuts are both his conquest and his vice; his nourishment and ruination. With otherworldly persistence, he will go to the ends of the earth for an acorn, figuratively and literally, falling from the earth’s crust to the core to reach it. His passion culminates in the final scene of the film (SPOILER ALERT) when after his heroes journey he finally reaches Scratlantis. Aristcratle, the wise, Grecian-esque philosopher, challenges the squirrel to be “more than a rodent,” but his request sees no end. The squirrel tornadoes through the abundance of nuts on the island, destroying the seemingly civilized society based on wisdom and thought. The squirrel’s deep struggle mirrors the problems some humans face.

While the squirrel seemed at first content with what his brethren had wrought; we discover that his happiness is caused not by meeting other members of his species (the first squirrels other than our legendary squirrel to appear in these movies), or for the incredible art and sciences they have mastered. Instead it is entirely caused by his now easy access to what drives him entirely: nuts. Within one breath, he turns from amazement to greed, willingly choosing to doom the other squirrels and the entire island (and perhaps the known world), only in order to get a single, additional nut. When one thinks about it, nuts run the entire squirrel society, the same way that money is threaded into our human world. Fascinatingly, even when the squirrel is able to get a nut, or in the case of Scratlantis, many nuts–he doesn’t enjoy them. He in fact does nothing at all except to hide it away. Perhaps this references his desire to have food in the long run, i.e. over winter, however given that this is the ice age, and that it’s always winter for this squirrel, and that he never seems to eat, the idea that he desires to get a nut to sustain himself is unlikely. This supports our argument about the squirrel possessing more depth than appears. We believe that his ambition to capture nuts and to stomp on them must necessarily speak to the vices of certain humans, who are never satiated and whose greed knows no bounds. God I love the squirrel.

In the main plotline, the questions of evil and vice could not even compare to that of the squirrel. The villain captain monkey was the worst villain of all time. He caused a certain amount of fear to a two year old only because he said he could shove people’s guts out of their mouths by pushing downwards from stomach to mouth. That doesn't even make any sense.

Made me want my $5 back on my Southwest flight.

I am into 3D movies and have a screen and 3D blue ray play and love this movie anyway, but in 3D it was really great.
